RatPack Intro:

Travelling New Zealand couldn’t be easier with the Kiwi Experience, these guys will take you around various routes of NZ, hitting up all the hotspots of
the north and south islands. Choose a route best suited to you and your time frame and the kiwi ex crew will do the rest! They also guarantee you at
least 1 hostel night at each location (which is awesome in busy periods).

Simply select a start date – we will then notify the Kiwi Ex crew of you arrival date and they will pre book each sector – you can then easily modify the
sectors as you go.

Not sure when your travelling? No probs! You can book this experience open dated and then once you are ready to get booked in, drop us a message and we
can sort it all out for you! Your pass will be valid for 12 months after purchase – so you’ll need to start travelling within that time, an awesome
tip from us is that Kiwi have epic sales on throughout the year so we can hook you up!

{{ RPT recommends – put down the phone whilst your cruising about and chat to the legends around you, you never know what the next interesting convo will
bring! }

Destination Overview:

Check out our awesome back yard – Auckland to Christchurch including the Bay of Islands, Cape Reinga and Milford Sound. This pass includes the Sheepdog
